Last year I went to Faversham just for the Saturday after an absence of many years. Bob Kenward ran a good session in the Old Wine Vaults at lunchtime but the late afternoon one was ruined by the amplified music from the garden. I fully appreciate the fact that the landlord has to make money and that this weekend is probably the busiest all year and he has to make the most of it. This year I came down to dance with Gongs during the day and find a music session in the evening. I enjoyed the Crown and Anchor on Friday (too tired to go anywhere on Saturday night).For musicians/singers wanting music all day (like the Good Intent in Rochester) couldn't interested parties contact the publicans in the pubs just a bit away from the noise and the crows in the centre? I'm sure that if they were assured of custom all day they would be happy to have a session. If one was organised in advance it could go in the programme. Anyone willing to give it a try?
